Mexico’s state oil firm Pemex has awarded a three-year order for offshore engineering services to British-based international services company Wood Group, which announced the deal on Tuesday.
The blanket order for work in both deepwater and complex shallow water environments could be worth up to $28 million and will comprise: field development planning and engineering of topsides facilities; subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines; and floating systems.
The deepwater fields Wood will work in include Exploratus, Kunah, Lakach, Piklis and Trion. The extra-heavy oil fields in its remit include Ayatsil, Tekel and Utsil.
With Mexico’s opening up of its oil industry the country and Pemex are availing of the expertise of international companies.
Wood Group already has a pedigree for work in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Aberdeen-headquartered company provides a range of engineering, production support, and maintenance management services to the oil and gas, and power generation industries worldwide.
